Easy Recycled Appliqué in 4 Steps


Lu LOVED this shirt and being that the message is Green I thought I would recycle it. Perfect timing because Lu's preschool issues the kids the same canvas tote bags at the beginning of the year.

This stuff rocks! You need it for your appliqué.

  1. Cut out design (allow for some room around design. It is easier to trim more exactly after the No Sew Adhesive is attached.
  2. Cut out No Sew Adhesive to match
  3. Iron according to directions
  4. Peel off backing and iron onto (in this case) Lu's school bag.

Done! Next step...adding some grosgrain bows or felt flowers :-)

I never thought about recycling an old shirt. This is so great. Thanks for the idea.

Such a great idea! I've done this as well (but took a graphic from one very-loved tee and put it on a newer one.) Post a picture after you've added your flowers! Can't wait! :)

Let's see... it's recycled. It's crafty. And it's something Lu can actually USE. It's the perfect craft trifecta, I tell you! Way to go! :-)
